Image the setting… It’s the morning of your wedding day and your bridesmaids arrive to your staging area early for hair and make-up application. The room is buzzing with excitement and conversation. You are relaxed, chatting with ‘your girls’ and the morning hours fly. It’s now 3pm and time for you to get dressed for your ceremony. Your bridesmaids follow your lead but one gal returns fifteen minutes later to tell you her dress doesn’t fit. Do you believe this scenario? It truly, 100 percent, happened.
Now what. You have a bridesmaid that cannot fit into her dress and it’s 3:15pm and your ceremony starts at 5pm. It’s too late to call for an alterations person to sew a panel into the dress. Even if the tailor could sew another panel into the dress, where would they get the fabric? There isn’t time to go shopping for another dress as the nearest store is 20 minutes away. Time is ticking.
What would you do? Tell the bridesmaid that she cannot walk down the aisle or send her to the nearest department store to find a similar style, color and fabric match dress?
The bride was calm but embarrassed and sent her friend to find another dress.
Lesson to learn: Focus on every detail even the ones that seem so simple but can become complicated.
